Modelling of Meddy-topography interactions
This is the title of the post-doc. research I undertook
-- for a period of 2 years, which started at 1 June 1996 --
at the Geophysical and Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
supervised by prof. Peter Davies.

Dundee, DD1 4HN
The research project
The project was a study, both numerical and experimental,
of the interactions of topography on the motion of Meddies.
A meddy (=Mediteranean eddy) is, in brief, an isolated drifting eddy
containing water mass properties typical of Meditaranean water outflow.

The work I have done, both in this project and during my
post-doc. research in Eindhoven,
is numerical and involves computations of the evolution of vortices using a
Finite Difference Method developed during
my post-doc. research in Eindhoven,
which has been extended with a bottom topography.
See for information and examples the page
Numerical simulations of 2D vortex
evolution with a Finite Difference Method.
Here is a list of my publications
about my Post-doc. research in Fluid Dynamics.
The research was financed through the
Marine Science and Technology
programme of the European Community's
Research Training Grants scheme
Fourth Framework Programme (1994-1998).

Development Information Service.
Why did I want to go to Scotland?
Well, first of all the research subject is very interesting.
But besides that Scotland is a very beautiful country,
perhaps the most beautiful country on Earth!?
To show this I have some
Web pages on Scotland.
